Three Taverns Cranberry Sauced will kick off taproom can series

Three Taverns Cranberry Sauced

Three Taverns Sour Asylum 2 is back in action for the season, and for the first time – cans. This sour is basically Thanksgiving dinner in your mouth.

The Decatur, Georgia based brewery kicked off the Sour Asylum Series with Sour Asylum 1, a Lactobacillus kettle soured beer fermented with the brewery’s house lager yeast.

The second edition took that beer a step further with the addition of cranberry juice, cinnamon and clove. A perfect Thanksgiving sour beer. They call it “Cranberry Sauced” for a reason.

At this point, Three Taverns is at capacity. This is preventing them from putting another release into full production right now. With what little time they have to spare, the brewery is launching a taproom only series of can releases.

Cranberry Sauced is the second in our new series of lacto-fermented sour ales. Spiced with cranberry juice, cinnamon, and clove in the fermenter, and balanced by a pleasing acidity from the lactobacillus strain added to the kettle, this unique beer is your perfect companion to the Thanksgiving season.

Three Taverns Sour Asylum 2 is on tap the brewery starting today, September 1st. You’ll find it on tap in market in October.

Style: Berliner Weisse (w/ Cranberry Juice, Cinnamon, Clove)
Availability: Draft, 12oz Cans (Taproom)

Latest Return: November, 2016

Three Taverns Feest Noel returns November 3rd

Three Taverns Feest Noel 2016

Three Taverns Feest Noel, the Decatur, Georgia based brewery’s Christmas offering, returns this week.

Brewery founder Brian Purcell always had a vision for this beer – family. Something that echoed the flavor of this (coming) time of the year, meant to be drank with family and friends. After a few dozen bottles of this big seasonal, we think Purcell and his team have done it.

This Belgian-style quadrupel uses dark roasted malts, imported Belgian dark candy sugar, and spiced accents of cardamom, allspice and cloves. Make this rich ale a part of your holiday celebration.

Three Taverns Feest Noel is available in 750 milliliter bottles, and draft.

Style: Quadrupel (w/ Cardamom, Allspice, Clove)
Availability: 750ml Bottles, Draft. Seasonal Release.

Hardywood Farmhouse Pumpkin Ale kicks off fall in Richmond

Hardywood Farmhouse Pumpkin Ale

Hardywood Farmhouse Pumpkin Ale debuts today at the brewery in Richmond, Virginia.

Easing into the fall season, Hardywood Farmhouse Pumpkin combines a base flavor of a Belgian-style farmhouse ale, with Virginia flame-roasted sugar pumpkins plus a little brown sugar.

Tack on fresh ground cinnamon, nutmeg, and clove, ginger, and allspice for that touch of fall flavor. The end result is another fantastic Hardywood offering.

A great accompaniment to butternut squash soup or oven baked yams, Farmhouse Pumpkin is also right at home with spiced pies, especially bourbon pecan pie, apple pie and, of course, pumpkin pie with fresh whipped cream.

Hardywood Farmhouse Pumpkin Ale is available in 750 milliliter bottles and draft, seasonally.

Style: Farmhouse Ale (w/ Pumpkin, Brown Sugar, Cinnamon, Cloves, Nutmeg, Ginger, Allspice.)

Three Taverns Bourbon Barrel-Aged Feest Noel debuts

Three Taverns Bourbon Barrel Feest Noel bottle

Three Taverns Bourbon Barrel-Aged Feest Noel debuts this Sunday at the brewery in Decatur, Georgia. This is the first time a barrel-aged edition of this beer has been bottled.

Feest Noel, the brewery’s festival Belgian-style quadrupel, was first bottled in time for Christmas 2014. The beer is brewed with cardamom, allspice and clove, bolstered by the Belgian yeast nice warming of the 10% ABV.

Three Taverns Bourbon Barrel-Aged Feest Noel came out of the barrel strong. In your face, bourbon flavor strong. Additionally, the spices had faded after a year of barrel rest as well. So brewery founder Brian Purcell opted to blend the barreled Feest with the fresh, 2015 batch. Trust us when we say, the barrel isn’t hidden at all by the blend. Purcell and the brewing team have found a great balance in the blend, making this a great seasonal treat.

Three Taverns Bourbon Barrel-Aged Feest Noel is available in 750ml bottles as tour souvenir. Limited distribution to follow the first week of December.

Avery Pump[KY]n, Batch 2, returns November 8th

Avery Pump[KY]n

Avery Pump[KY}n, Batch 2, returns to the brewery’s lineup on November 8, 2015.

Avery’s Barrel Aged Series is damn near legendary, featuring sours alongside bourbon imperial stouts. Avery PumKYn, a compliment to the the slightly boozier Avery Rumpkin, is a Kentucky bourbon barrel aged porter with a smattering of fall spices. The 2015 edition’s alcohol by volume is 15%.

What’s in a name? Sometimes the simplest can be the most descriptive, and in this case, derisive and divisive! After much internal debate (ad nauseum! Bourb[KY]n, anyone?), we decided a single letter change was the best way to embody the bourbon barrel-aging that adds layers of complexity to an already exquisitely spiced pumpkin porter.

Avery PumKYn will be available in 12oz bottles and draft at the brewery on the 8th, limited distribution found below.

Style: Porter (w/ Nutmeg, Cinnamon, Allspice, Clove, Pumpkin. Barrel Aged. Bourbon.)
Availability: 12oz Bottles
Arrival: 11/7/15
Distribution: CO, CA, IL, KY, MN, MO, NJ, NY, OK, PA, SC, TX, VA, WI
